Can't find WIN32::ODBC package

I'm running the latest ActivePerl on Windows XP Pro. I want to talk to my SQL Server 2005 database but get errors when I invoke commands to the WIN32::ODBC. I post elsewhere suggested I look in the PPM and re-install the WIN32::ODBC package manually. The thing is when I looked in the PPM, I couldn't find that package, either as installed one, or as one that I could tag for installation. so my first question is how do I get WIN32::ODBC on the list so I can select it for installation?

Second question is it seems that the WIN32::ODBC method seesm to be rather unpopular (based on posts that i've read). I'd like some feedback as to why this may be the case.

Thanks
